I stopped taking my bcp on January 8th On January


Q: I stopped taking my bcp on January 8th. On January 11th I bled and it didn't stop till the 21st after that I haven't gotten a period yet and negative pregnancy tests. I have been having unprotected sex with my fiancé . Recently I had some really bad cramping. I start cramping on the 10th then it stopped. Then 6 days later on the 16th I had cramping again then it stopped . On the 20th I had really bad cramping like my period was coming on and off until the 24th then it stopped again. Now I have mild cramping here and there but not as bad as before. I'm really starting to get frustrated! I just want my menstrual cycle to come if I'm not pregnant. I don't think I am Because of the negative pregnancy tests. But I don't know if I still might be pregnant either . Should I take a blood test just to be sure? Or should I just wait it out? Thank you!
